“Tintiniškių street in Tintiniškių village is a settlement of residential houses, surrounded only by young families with children. In our settlement, this road is the only exit, and at the moment it has turned into a swamp, cars cannot pass at all. The senate refuses to do something because of “unfavorable weather conditions”, and everyone needs to take children to educational institutions and go to work regardless of the weather conditions. What about the necessary help, should it be needed.

The fact that the mayoral elections will be held on Sunday is not news to the council. It’s 22 km to the polling place, so you won’t be able to walk very far,” the woman explained the problem.

He also asked the candidate

After seeing a post on the Facebook account of one of the candidates for mayor of the Vilnius district, inviting everyone to vote on Sunday, she wrote a comment in which she asked how to get to the ballot box, if the municipality ignores it all week and leaves residents with an impassable road.

“So even though I voted in the first round, this time I cannot fulfill my civic duty,” assured the reader.

The problem occurs every time it is watered

Grading is done in fall, spring and summer, several times a season, but only after you write to the council several times. There was no grader this year,” assured the resident of the village of Tintiniškii.
